After my first experiment I decided to make a bigger quilt that would actually be of use. The quilt features a large baby blocks motif. Each side of the blocks has an animal pattern quilted onto it, hence the name of the quilt. The back shows the quilt pattern more clearly.

The white leaves refer to new life ('a blank canvas'), developing in a colorful world. New life also points to the source of the leaves: the white shapes are 'scraps' left over from earlier quilts, brought to life in this design. The Japanese characters were added last to the design and mean as much as 'sapling' or 'young tree'. The echo-quilting around the leaves remind me of a Japanese rock garden. Quilt detail.
